There is no doubt that you will have heard about Botox Treatments, unless of course you have been living under a rock for the last 20 years. Botox treatments are some of the most highly used treatments that are available the whole world wide. Botox treatment is so popular and this is because of the temporary but undeniable changes it can make to a person’s life, both men and women are like are opting to have some form of Botox Treatment that is available.
The most common way for Botox Treatment to be used is by injection to the facial area. This is for the sole purpose of paralyzing facial muscles so as to stop facial movement and prevent wrinkles. It will also eliminate any wrinkles that are already apparent on the face. There are areas on the face that are usually targeted such as the laughter lines, the crow’s feet and also the 11’s lines that are found between the eyebrows. As noted earlier, Botox Treatments provide a temporary solution and when having the injections, the Botox usually lasts anywhere between three to six months. The Botox Treatment procedure is very straight forward and very rarely are there any complications in the aftermath. There is no recovery period to Botox treatments on the facial area either so it is possible to book an appointment and continue with an everyday routine.
A less common use for Botox treatment is that for treating migraines. When Botox is injected, it helps to prevent activation of the pathways in your head and neck which contribute to having migraine headache pain. Botox is actually a neurotoxin but when it is given in small doses it does not get absorbed into the bloodstream. Botox is a preventive medicine and can help to stop a migraine headache before it starts. Only consider getting this type of Botox Treatment under the referral of a specialist and when receiving the Botox Treatment, you should get it from a doctor who is fully trained to give these injections for chronic migraine headaches rather than for wrinkles or other cosmetic uses. There could be possible side effects to having Botox Treatment for migraines, most are mild and expected such as neck pain and headaches but this will subside as the Botox Treatment begins to take effect.
Another use for Botox treatment is for those who sweat excessively and want to reduce underarm sweating. This type of Botox treatment works blocking a chemical in the body that activates the sweat glands. Normally, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. This is how your body automatically cools itself. In people with excessive sweating, however, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive. When receiving Botox injections directly into the area of your body that commonly sweats, your overactive nerves are essentially paralyzed. When your nerves can’t signal your sweat glands, you don’t sweat. Botox treatment will only prevent sweating in the specific area where it’s injected.
